Goddesses of Food; Gowanus Whole Foods' Opening Date

R.I.P — Chef Shin Tsujimura of Nobu 57 passed away earlier today. He worked with with Nobu Matsuhisa and that world class team for almost 20 years. Bizarre Foods host Andrew Zimmern files a post in honor of his friend: "[H]e fed me like a son. Always remembering my favorites, always making sure I ate whatever had come right in that afternoon and always making sure I ate something new. He delighted in that. The hospitality business is all about taking care of people's happiness, being responsible for it while they are under your roof. Shin Tsujimura embodied that ideal." [AZ]
